Whether it is the ultimate self-drive safari that you are treating yourself and your loved ones to, or one of our Kruger Park safari packages, the same rules apply. The park rules have been a work in progress since the first visitors passed through the gates. Every one of the rules is put in place for your protection and for the protection of the animals. SANParks is very strict about the rules and if you are found guilty of breaking them, you could easily be facing a lifetime ban from the parks they govern, which is just about every national park in South Africa, or a permanent ban from the Kruger.
Either way, you need to always stick to the rules. In recent years, there has been an increase in guests breaking the rules and often unknowingly putting themselves in danger. Just take a look on YouTube and you will easily find videos of park guests doing the craziest things.
But you don’t have to be one of those fools. You just need to read this and obey the regulations.
This is not a guideline. This list is one that you have to stick to and the moment you pay your entrance fee, you have agreed to the law that has been set down by the park. When on a guided Kruger Park safari, your experienced guide will make sure that you don’t break the park law, but if you are on your own, you have to take responsibility for your actions.
